I've been reading this blog for a few months, and I'm taking a few university courses incorporating R, but I'm going to enroll because I've never been given an introduction. Only ad hoc methods for specific analyses.

I'm taking machine learning on Coursera, and I love it. Maybe some more newcomers will join me.

FYI, the computational finance class by Eric Zivot ( https://class.coursera.org/compfinance-2012-001/class/index ) also teaches R, as a power tool for when Excel can't handle your time series and eigendecompositions. I also have been very impressed by the treatment of basic probability and linear algebra.

And it precedes Jeff Leek's course... :-D

Correction -- it precedes (or at least predates) Roger Peng's course. Fortunately most people can "afford" to take both!
